Turkey patties with chilli yoghurt sauce 0



View Profile

Turkey mince is a great alternative to beef and chicken and is a great option for those looking for a healthier choice come dinner time. These patties were whipped up in a flash and served with an easy vegetable fried rice, but you could also pair them with a fresh salad or even make burgers out of them! The fresh herbs really come through here and the chilli yogurt is the perfect finish to tie it all together.
